â€œTheir land is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made.â€ - Isaiah 2.8
Many spiritually discerning Christians believe that a nuclear strike is likely to take place soon in the USA. Much in the same way that the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001 were, at first, thought to be accidents and were totally unconventional, We believe that a nuclear terrorist attack will also, at first, be viewed as an accident, and will take place in an unconventional manner. Â It will be in more than one city, and it will, for lack of a better word, finish the USA for good as a superpower. Many people may scoff at this...... Scoffers have come and gone in the past. However, the bottom line here is that God is NOT limitless in his patience, and the United States of America has gotten away with moral depravity, abominable practices, and gross immorality for far too long. Greater societies have fallen for lesser offences towards God..... What makes the USA, think that we are any different? Though many Americans claim to be Christians, it is shocking to hear President Obama state that we are not a Christian Nation. Indeed, Christ has been dismissed from public school for nearly fifty years. The name of Jesus Christ has been mocked, taken in vain, and used as a curse in the media for nearly as long. Sin has been upheld by US society as good and right since the 1960s. Yet, while we have a large percentage of the population claiming Christ, and while cities and towns and villages all across the land still have churches in them, the fact that we have slidden so far, makes it a glaring truth when the President comes out and states it in public.... Many claim Christ, but are we actively living him out in our lives. Â God will not hold out his hand of blessing on our nation for much longer. America is already reeling from our foolish decisions to ignore God and His Word..... Nuclear 9-11 could be coming, folks and I believe that it may be upon us soonâ€¦.perhaps, even, before President Obama is finished with his first term, and certainly before the end of his second, should he somehow be elected to one, especially if he makes FOCA and the rest of his liberal agenda the law of our land.
â€œFor the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from truth, and shall be turned unto fables.â€ - 2nd Timothy 4.4-5
Since that devastating day of September 11th, 2001 - what has actually changed in the USA? Â Have we, the citizens of the United States learned any lessons at all and/or repented of our sins and iniquities and turned back to God? Iniquities and sins that we have, for so long, embraced and even made a way of life? Have we as an American society changed our ways at all and come to accept the God of the Bible and of our Founding Fathers as the true foundation of our nation? Immediately after the terrorist attacks, church attendance skyrocketed. Within six months to a year, church attendance had dropped to pre-9/11 levels, and the decline has steadily continued until today. Instead of calling for repentance, the USA has continued to embrace deviant lifestyles, abominable practices, sordid violence, seedy sex, and vitriolic forms of entertainment.
The immorality of the once great USA has been weighed in Godâ€™s balances, and we as a nation are found wanting. In the thirty-six years since the Supreme Court of the United States of America legislated from the bench and legalized abortion on demand, 50 million innocents in the USA have been put to death. Christ states very clearly in the Proverbs that the shedding of innocent blood is an abomination to him:
â€œThese six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination to him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent bloodâ€¦â€ - Proverbs 6.16-17
â€œHow dare you judge me, you asked? Didnâ€™t Jesus say, â€˜Judge notâ€¦?â€™â€ How many times has this phrase been called out by someone on the receiving Â of the truth? Yet the glaring fact of the matter is, most people who use this phrase simply to justify their sin and then go right on with their lives, never changing or repenting of the sin which has so easily entangled them (Hebrews 12.1).
The Bible is filled with account after account of civilizations being totally destroyed - including Israel - for their own shedding of innocent blood. Along with this, homosexuality is gaining more and more acceptance and strength in the USA, and despite the majority of Americans being against same-sex â€œmarriageâ€, several states by way of their supreme courts have legalized homosexual â€œmarriageâ€ as protected under the law. How much longer will God wait? September 11th, 2001 proved that we as a society have been weighed and found wanting.. the slide into immorality has only gotten worse, since. Could it be time for another wake-up call from God?
Conclusion and/or point, you may ask?? â€œRepent: for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand.â€ --Matthew 4.17
